RIM to Merge Adobe's Flash into BlackBerry Platform

Today Research In Motion and Adobe announced that the two will work together to integrate Flash technology into the BlackBerry development platform. This new level of integration will let developers use Adobe Flash and Adobe Creative Suite tools to create content and applications for BlackBerry devices. Developers that use Adobe's tool sets will have a much easier time porting image and video content from applications such as PhotoShop, Illustrator, and After Effects into BlackBerry development tools such as the BlackBerry java Eclipse plug-in. The new Flash tools should make for better applications and services for end users.

Good luck with that!

Adobe Flash has no place on mobile devices (or anywhere, really.)

Quoting from the "Adobe UI Gripes" tumblr:

"About six months ago, a friend who was working closely along side adobe’s flash application development team told me that they received a prototype of Flash for iPhone. The prototype allowed the iPhone to have less than half an hour of battery life using flash. They then sent the prototype to apple and suggested incorporating this prototype iPhone flash into the iPhone OS in the next update.

Apparently apple sent this letter back thanking them for being interested in developing a working version of flash for the iphone but because the prototype is so processor intensive, and awful for battery life, they would not incl...
Nice Apple story there.
Flash is going to be going on everything in the future and prototypes are just that...prototypes. Besides, with RIM products you can carry an extra few batteries around to handle the 1/2 battery life thing now anyway Laughing
You know, this is a good LOL story, but Apple does have a point that other phone OS manufacturers should listen to.

USE THE GPU to Render The Desktop!

All those nice fade and slide effects that are herky jerky on normal phones, yet run perfectly...
